Thousands of Boston Red Sox fans making amends for the actions of few lone dummies is the sweetest video you’ll watch today.

On Tuesday, Baltimore Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones received a standing ovation from the notoriously tough Fenway Park faithful. On Monday, the visiting player had peanuts and racial slurs thrown at him — but a difference a day makes.

Sox fans weren’t the only ones pulling a classy move last night: Boston pitcher Chris Sale left the mound and walked around the infield to allow his home fans to acknowledge Jones. Sale’s right fielder Mookie Betts — who implored Boston fans to show some love to Jones — removed his cap and applauded the moment.

Watch the nice reception he received via the video above.

Earlier Tuesday afternoon, “Captain America” star Chris Evans — a lifelong Sox fan who hails from Boston — called for a “lifetime ban” for the “disgusting” behavior of the offender or offenders.

The Red Sox publicly apologized for the fan’s behavior yesterday, and Boston’s mayor condemned the incident as “unacceptable & shameful.”
